Converts HTML to Jade template. Not perfect but useful enough for non-daily conversions.

README.md

html2jade

Build Status

html2jade converts HTML into Jade format.

Requirements

html2jade currently supports OS X and Linux platforms.

Windows is currently not supported because html2jade uses jsdom which in turn depends on native code module Contextify.

Install

npm install -g html2jade

Command-line Usage

Outputs to stdout if input is URL

html2jade http://twitter.com

html2jade http://twitter.com > twitter.jade

Outputs to file if input is file

html2jade mywebpage.html # outputs mywebpage.jade
html2jade public/*.html  # converts all .html files to .jade

Convert HTML from stdin

cat mywebpage.html | html2jade - 

To generate Scalate compatible output:

html2jade --scalate http://twitter.com
html2jade --scalate http://twitter.com > twitter.jade
html2jade --scalate mywebpage.html
html2jade --scalate public/*.html

Command-line Options

  • -d, --double - use double quotes for attributes
  • -s, --scalate - generate jade syntax compatible with Scalate
  • -o, --outdir <dir> - path to output generated jade file(s) to
  • -n, --nspaces <n> - the number of spaces to indent generated files with. Default is 2 spaces
  • -t, --tabs - use tabs instead of spaces
  • --donotencode - do not html encode characters. This is useful for template files which may contain expressions like {{username}}

Programmatic Usage (>= 0.0.7)

To convert raw HTML into Jade:

var html2jade = require('html2jade');
var html = "<html><body>Hello World</body></html>";
html2jade.convertHtml(html, {}, function (err, jade) {
  // do your thing
});

To convert DOM document into Jade (client-side):

// assumes html2jade.js file has been loaded
Html2Jade.convertDocument(document, {}, function (err, jade) {
  // do your thing
});

Status

Mostly usable but sometimes requires fixing up, usually involving conditionals and scripts indentation.

While converting a fairly complicated theme package with ~20 HTML files, I had to hand-edit just twice.

Tools using html2jade

Web version

There is a web version of html2jade, kindly provided by @aaronpowell.

Linux tray app

Miniclip is a Linux tray app that quickly converts HTML to Jade, CSS to Stylus and JS to Coffee from clipboard.

Testing

As of version 0.4, there is a simple unit test that converts HTML files in test/data directory and compare them against Jade files in the same directory. Unit test harness requires coffee-script and mocha to be installed globally. Run the tests with command npm test.
